Loved the Gardens , absolutely stunning. Loved the Trees, Flowers and the Art Sculptures. But the car parks were full with many of us driving around looking for a park, ended up parking on the road a wee way away and walking to the gardens.
These gardens were so beautiful even though we were at the end of summer. There are ducks, ponds and beautiful gardens including rose gardens. It is a lovely way to spend an afternoon. It’s also an easy walk from the CBD.
This truly is a lovely place to visit whilst in Christchurch. The gardens are beautiful and a visit to the glasshouses is really worthwhile too. Just looking around and relaxing amde me feel relaxed and calm.
Congratulations to all of the horticulturists involved.

You can get to the car park off Armagh St near the start of Park Tce and the end of Rolleston Avenue. You can drive through the park passed the tennis courts on the right and on to the car park on the left under the trees near the children's playground which is on the other side of the pedestrian bridge over the Avon River. It is quite a big car park and during the week it is usually easy to find a car park sometimes on a nice sunny weekend the carpark fills up. If there are festivals it becomes impossible to get a park.
